This is a fictional account of a real life group of 'friends' or actually a click of socialites. They gossip and shop. They have work done to be perfect and talk about others. They're bread for marriage. Truman Capote infiltrates their little group. He's a real piece of work too. This book just wasn't my jam. I don't like the whole rich people behaving badly thing. I don't watch reality tv or keep up with all that. This is what it felt like to me.
